L Is For Lime, Like It Or Not

Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.54.41 AMTake life with a Grain of salt, a Slice of lime, and a shot of tequila

… is good advice that I’ve never taken literally because I don’t like to drink shots of tequila.

If I might be allowed to combine these ingredients with some simple syrup into a margarita on the rocks, then I’m right there with you chilling out about life, being cool about things.

Which is what I take this slang saying to mean.

OF COURSE if we happen to make it two margaritas, then I’m singing a song about a lime.

AND IF by chance we make it three margaritas?  I’m wearing a sombrero because like Hobbes says: “What fun is it being ‘cool’ if you can’t wear a sombrero!”

  1. I’m a tequila screwdriver kind of gal. I’ve had many arguments over the years with bartenders who were just sure I meant a tequila sunrise. Ah, no. I have done tequila shots a long, long time ago but I’d never heard that particular piece of advice. I will keep it in mind. You are doing amazingly well on your theme Ms. Bean. Very clever!

    1. Zazzy, I’ve never heard of that drink, but I understand what you’re asking for. I wouldn’t argue with you! No tequila shots for me. I took one once… and it was awful… but at least I can say I tried it.

      Thanks about the theme. I’m pretty good with sayings until the last week of the challenge. Stay tuned to see what happens then. O.0

  2. Lovely tune to hum while I dress the baby! LOL
    I do not like tequila. Yucko. My dad always had some on hand with the worm in it for grossing out his wife’s friends when they entertained. I remember as a child staring into that bottle. Never will I partake!

    1. bitsfromheaven, I forgot about that worm thing. Do all bottles of tequila have a worm in them? I hope not. Considering how rarely I drink the stuff, I probably shouldn’t worry, though.

    1. joanne, I like that song even if it is a bit ridiculous. While I might not follow this saying to the letter [pun intended], I go with the essence of what it means. Especially when I wear a sombrero! 😉

    1. Carrie, I wouldn’t worry too much about that. No doubt someone will put the sombrero on your head for you. You must learn to rely on the kindness of strangers! 😉

  3. Paula, I think it’s the idea of this saying that’s important. So what if we don’t do shots? I’m sure a frozen margarita with salt will work just the same!

  4. I did a few (hundred) shots of tequila in college ~> my 30’s.

    Now I don’t do shots but I do still laugh out loud at Calvin & Hobbes cartoons. Thanks!

    1. nrhatch, somehow I missed the shots-of-tequila college experience. I guess I never developed a taste for tequila, but now will drink a margarita once and again. Especially if there’s a sombrero involved.

    1. Margaret, once in a while I’ll have one margarita, but they’re too intensely flavored for me. But I like the idea behind this saying, so for purposes of this post, I’ll pretend to adore margaritas! 😉
